Farmers choose to use roundup ready grain cause its just about idiot proof, its hard to screw up and killl most of a field. Its not abnormal to have somthing not die when round up it put on it, try to kill poison hemlock with it and i bet it wont die. Same goes for 2,4,D it will kill everything but grasses,
The issue is when a Monsanto plant cross pollinates with a non GMO variety, Monsanto comes in, sue the farmer for "copyright infringement" and puts him out of business.
This gets everyone in line.
Sort of like the Mob used to collect protection money. If you didn't pay, maybe your store burns down. Anyone else thinking of not paying quickly realizes the value of "protection".
